About Us


At College Recruiter, we create great candidate and recruiter experiences. Our interactive media solutions connect students and grads to great careers, because we believe every student and recent graduate deserves a part-time, seasonal, internship, or entry-level job that is right for them.


  • Honesty and integrity
  • Enthusiastic, passionate, tenacious, and fun
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Teamwork and collaboration
  • Continuous improvement
  • A positive customer experience!


Founded in 1991 as a publisher of campus maps and employment magazines, our mission has always been to connect great organizations with students and recent graduates. Our niche job board went live way back in 1996, which was a year after Yahoo! launched, two years before Google went live, and eight years before the birth of Facebook.

The Boring Stuff

College Recruiter is the leading job search site used by students and recent graduates of all 7,400+ one, two- and four-year colleges and universities who are seeking internships, part-time jobs, seasonal work, and entry-level career opportunities.

Our customers are primarily Fortune 1,000 companies, federal government agencies, and other employers who want to hire dozens, hundreds or thousands of students and recent graduates each year.


Today, College Recruiter is certified as a woman-owned, small business (WOSB), led by wife and husband Faith and Steven Rothberg.



Faith's career has always been at the intersection between business and technology. She started as a programmer for Ford Motor Company, graduated from the University of Michigan with an MBA, was a manufacturing information technology consultant with KPMG, served as a project manager for Wells Fargo, and then staged a bloodless coup after joining the business her husband founded, College Recruiter.

Faith's passion for helping young adults find great careers is evident in everything that College Recruiter does. As its integrator, Faith is the hub around which the organization revolves.



Steven's entrepreneurial spirit was evident from an early age. Disciplined in fifth grade for selling candy during math class and in college for running a massive fantasy hockey league, Steven managed to channel his passions into something more productive after graduate school.

A fully recovered lawyer, Steven founded the business that morphed into College Recruiter and now, as its visionary, helps to create and refine the company's strategy and leads its business development efforts.
